By Roman DiPasquale. It was great in Cordoba. You could walk around and find almost anything you wanted, within a small area.

By Chris Lu. Coming home is fun! It’s good to have some American food. The soft drinks are not as good as the Argentinian drinks. The airplane breakfast was yucky – the eggs were gray!

The fluidity of their lifestyle has allowed even the shyest of our group to have a Read more about Some last minute thoughts from Argentina[…]
By Alex Kennelly. Ayer, fuimos a una estancia y montamos caballos. Yesterday, we went to a ranch and rode horses. I was afraid at first because I had never really ridden a horse by myself, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. I also got a very nice leather jacket at the Read more about A Very Fun Day[…]
